I'm no fan of Novak but I think it's premature to predict his demise

I think he felt the weight of expectations this tournament and never played to his full ability. Hard to believe a player as seasoned and proven as Djokovic could feel pressured, but you only have to look at Serena's difficulties in matching Margaret Court's all time Slam count to see that every player is susceptible, even those in the GOAT conversation.

I also doubt that Medvedev will get to 20. He'd have to average 2 to 3 slams a year for the next 7 to 8 years. That level of consistency would be historic. I think Djoker will reign supreme for the next 2 to 3 years and get to 24 or 25 slams now that the calendar Slam pressure is off. He is still the most consistent player on tour, much as I hate to admit it. I think he's the favorite at all 4 slams next year and gets 2.
